Now that the Champions League is finished for the week we can jump back on the FPL wagon and take a look at the match-ups that are more pressing in the official game. Unfortunately rotations are going to be a major factor. That and the injury to Paul Pogba. His ownership is too much to look beyond. My advice for him is this. If you have owned him from week one then you can bench for the 2 weeks he most likely misses and not lose anything to your accrued team value. If you only just bought him in the past 2 weeks then you can transfer out and look for some kind of reprieve for fantasy points. But back to the rotation risks. All of Chelsea, Spurs, Liverpool, Man City, Man United, Arsenal and Everton are all at risk and the rankings will shy away from a few players that either played full 90's or that didn't see the pitch as much. So be heady and keep your ear to the gossip for who will sit and who will play before making a atransfer this week in a trivial yet pivotal game week 5. Enjoy the rankings and good luck. Cheers!
Queue the John Cena entrance music. But in all seriousness, in terms of the FPL, the part that doesn't have to deal with hustle, loyalty and respect, the Champions league is here and that spells doom for the five teams in it. On a side note, it also affects the two other teams in the Europa tournament as well, but they don't count because who cares about Arsenal or Everton. Only slightly kidding. So with this the first week where mid-week games affect the weekend fixtures what to do. Panic! Run to the window scream and say screw you rotation we don't wanna think about you or your ugly sister. Transfer Tuesday is happening today but that doesn't mean squat to you, because you should wait. Even at the expense of losing a few tenths of a cent. The rotations and line-ups for the seven teams that are affected send ripples through your team that can not be fixed, except at the expense of a -4. No one likes them things unnecessarily. So be heady, be patient and resist the temptations of transferring until we get a square idea of who and what will be included for the Week 5 fixtures of the FPL. Cheers!
